We stayed on a Saturday night and paid $76.25 through Priceline. It's just south of the SeaTac airport and convenient for driving to either Seattle or Tacoma. It's an older property but it has been kept up pretty well. Especially the rooms. The check in desk looks a little sketchy and so did the guy checking us in. No kudos... More

Allocated room 103 on my arrival for a split 2 night stay. I had two separate bookings for a Saturday night and Monday night, with a flight to Alaska in between. Tim sorted out a package which I was very happy with. This was a large room on the ground floor with an enormous double bed, some "antique" furniture, a... More

Avoid this place like the plague, it has got to be one of the worst places we have stayed in years. When we arrived in the room the lamp shade was pushed up against the mirror on the desk and all out of whack. So right there I could tell that the room had n't been properly taken care of,... More

Stayed for an overnight visit with family. Late check in and a wedding party needed our ground floor room, so we were upgraded to the executive suite for the price of a double queen. Exceptional room, quiet and relaxing. Robert at the front desk was beyond friendly and very efficient.

Even though I grew up in Des Moines, I was not aware of this very nice, well-located hotel. It is off the main road in Des Moines, but is in a place where many of Des Moines attractions, such as the marina and good places to eat. Reasonable price for a clean, basic room.

Clean and well appointed. Certainly value for money in comparison with the options close to the airport. Only 10 minute drive from Seatac. My only compliant was that neither my laptop or my phone could connect to wifi

Stayed here over SeaFair weekend where even the airport hotels were charging alot more. Absolutely love this place if you are a bargain hunter. Close to Des Moines Marina (perfect for a walk up the canyon) with great views of the sound. Room was clean. Convenience store across the street. Take the 116 bus to the Renton Transit Center and...

I live in North Seattle (Broadview) and travel for living big time. I find myself constantly staying at airport hotels to save time and offset the risk of the worst traffic in the nation as I fight to get to a 6:30am flight. Well, Seattle use to be easy, but now that the cruise industry and a total economic sonic... More

a nice room, easy check in and out. Changed our room to a bottom floor without problems. We didn't think the coffee was very good with the Continental breakfast... and this hotel is just south of Seattle.
